InOrbit, which develops cloud-based robot operations (RobOps) software, has announced a free version of the platform to let companies manage an unlimited number of robots for as long as they’d like. The goal is to help robot developers and operations teams scale their robots while focusing on unique features of their robots.
The InOrbit Free Edition gives access to the company’s end-to-end platform infrastructure, including the robot-agnostic InOrbit Agent, Adaptive Diagnostics, secure messaging infrastructure, and the InOrbit Control personalized dashboard. Features include observability, including robot analytics and diagnostics, as well as the ability to track a robot’s position on a map in real time. Additionally, users can define, detect and respond to incidents through one-click actions, within the dashboard or through included Slack integration.
“We’ve seen too many robotics companies waste precious time reinventing the wheel,” said Florian Pestoni, the CEO and co-founder of InOrbit. “With InOrbit Free Edition, we are helping companies address common robot operations problems without having to worry about having to enter a credit card. And unlike other limited time trials, Free Edition supports and unlimited number of robots for free – forever.”
The company said robotics companies using InOrbit can access advanced features through the InOrbit Standard Edition (SE), which includes more advanced incident management functions, additional integrations, real-time teleoperation, and other navigation features. This includes the recently launched Time Capsule feature, the company said.
“The InOrbit platform is a natural fit for our RoomieBots because we can put our focus in the research and development of the hardware capabilities, and delegate software management to InOrbit,” said Aldo Luévano Ibarra, CEO of Roomie, which is developing humanoid robots for markets in Latin America. “The main advantage is that we don’t need to worry about the software capabilities in the product’s evolution, letting us avoid capital-intensive investment for software development to receive the latest technology.”
